2015 Christmas Haven Thanks

2015 Christmas Haven Thanks

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has given us gifts to help make sure no-one in Harlow needs to sleep rough at Christmas. We’re a small charity with no premises and no paid staff, and we simply could not do what we do without your generosity.

(If we forget to acknowledge a gift, please do give us a reminder at contact@chocolaterun.org.uk and we’ll put it right.)

We want to start by thanking the Great Parndon Community Association. They give us, for free, the exclusive use of their Play Barn every Sunday and over Christmas and New Year. We’d be lost without them.

Another long-standing strong supporter we’d like to thank is the Co-Op at Maunds Hatch. We buy food there every Sunday, and they give us £10 off every Sunday.  Plus, they are providing milk and papers every day for the Christmas Haven.

Both St Mary at Latton and  St Stephens Church Over 60’s Hub have given us generous cash donations.

Harlow Foodbank delivered fresh food when we opened
